BBQ Destinations: Cheap Tickets
Looking for a new place to visit this summer? Cheap Tickets has just published their list of the top barbecue destinations in the United States. While the cities it lists are good, and all of the restaurants mentioned are worth a visit, I don't agree with all of their choices. I know there are a lot of other barbecue joints I'd go to before heading to these. But this is a great place to start. Here's their list...
In Atlanta, GA: Fat Matt's Rib Shack
In Charlotte, NC: Carolina Country BBQ
In New Orleans, LA: ZydeQue
Austin, TX: The Salt Lick
Nashville, TN: Corky's Ribs and BBQ
In Savannah, GA: Sweet Leaf Smokery
And finally in Louisville, KY: Mark's Feed Store BBQ
Of course, the best barbecue trip would be to get into your car and drive! Just get into the Carolinas and keep going South. Keep your eyes and nose open. Follow that plume of wood smoke and who knows what you'll find. I've found some of the best barbecue joints that way.
